Posting over and over

Yesterday I spent the afternoon cutting up 6x6 posts to previous measure. Eleven of them, in all.

This morning I scurried over to Wilderstead and was on site before 10:30. My first hour was spent installing the 6x6 posts, using a sledgehammer and a post level. Then I took a break and mixed a small sack of concrete to do some erosion control on the stair-fall leading down to the Pishon. Next I rode my tractor across the creek to do some chainsaw work (because I was too tired to lug the saw and I didn't want to get my feet wet).

By this time, it was rising one o'clock, and I had to get done by two. I took my drill and screwed in corner braces on both sides of all eleven posts. They're not going anywhere, now. I replaced some weatherstripping on my cabin door, swept the place out, and boogied for home in order to take part in a 5:15 Zoom meeting.

All in all, a great day, a beautiful day. Social distancing at its best.


I've sure been posting a lot today
